Course content

The course motivates for the study through basic training within ICT-methods and tools that are used by different study profiles at the program for Engineering and ICT. This is realized through basic training in the use of tools and methods organized as small projects connected to different profiles. In some degree there will be a connection between the projects. The course will also include basic training in programming. Experiences from the course are valuable later in the study.

Learning outcome


The candidate will learn to know and use different computer based tools relevant for the study program. The candidate will also learn basic knowledge within programming in Java.


The candidate will be able to handle elements as 3D modeling of ships, visualization of geographic information as well as the use of computer based tools related to marine technology, petroleum engineering and production engineering.

General competence:

The candidate is supposed to have a general insight into how a computer program is made, how it works and how it can be used.

Learning methods and activities

The course gives theoretical and practical training in various computer based methods and tools that are used by different study profiles. This can be ICT/CAE tools and tools related to handling of geographic information, marine technology, petroleum engineering or production engineering. The education is based on lectures and sub-projects connected to different study profiles. The course also includes training in programming concluded by a practical task connected to one of the study profiles. The Technostart project is also integrated in the course.

Further on evaluation

The students need to pass all the sub-projects in the course. Assessment for the course is based on group projects. If significant differences in the contributions from group members have been documented, individual adjustment of final grading may be considered.

To pass the different sub-projects it is expected a quality of the work equivalent to the grade D or better.

Specific conditions

Admission to a programme of study is required:
Engineering and ICT (MTING)
